LEX - the game of small words

By Simple Machine, LLC

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


LEX is more than a word game. It’s an edge-of-your-seat experience of colorful glyphs and breath-taking music that you create as you play.

Combine letters to form words before time runs out. Each word gets you closer and closer to the next level.

Your heart pounds as you fight to make just one more word.


- Modern twist on the traditional word game formula

- Each letter you choose creates a unique kaleidoscoping image

- Includes a player-generated soundtrack conducted by your every move

- Leaderboards and achievements to compete with your friends

- Simple enough for kids who are learning how to spell

- “Pro Submitting” setting to submit words even faster

- Universal app looks great on iPhone, iPad, and iPod.

Note to parents:

LEX does not have any in app purchases or ads. We have also included an expletive filter so the game doesn't randomly make explicit words. If you have any questions or comments, please email us (see below).

What's New in Version 1.3

A new LEX update is upon us.

Thanks for all your love and support for LEX. We've been reading all your reviews and mapping out a bunch of new features to add in.

This update adds a daily letter challenge that will rotate through the alphabet each day. Each letter has three challenges to get in the game.

Of course, we had to add a trophy room for those letters, who will collect them all?

We also added a new dictionary to the game for all you book worms. So now you can make all the words you know and love. If we've missed on, please email us and let us know, we'll look it up and if it checks out, we'll add it.

Finally, we redesigned the end game screen to include your top ten scores, all the words you used per game, and even select any of the words to see their art. It's exactly what it's been needing.

Hope you enjoy it, and email us with love, we love love!

Customer Reviews

Lex is the best word app!!!

I love this app. I think that it is so simple and fun much like the other simple machine games. One thing that I love is the letter challenges however there are often issues with completing them for instance I was working on the letter "B" and one of the three challenges has you start and end a word with a "B" however I played for over an hour today and I never had two "B"s at a time making it impossible to complete the challenge so some sort of patch would be great to help get those challenges completed so I don't have to wait another month for an opportunity to complete it.

I would recommend this game to anyone and have gifted it to several people!!! It's great and I wish the simple machine nothing but luck and a great future of app development.

Engaging app

This is a simple but neat word game. You are presented with 9 letters, and you need to create words. Each letter has a distinct point value. The pace increases as you play, and letters expire when the background fills up. There are also daily challenges based upon a specific letter of the alphabet.

My only gripe is that some of the challenges require words with two of the challenge letter, but I have never seen a letter repeat.

On the plus side, there seems to always seems to be at least one five letter word, and sometimes six- and seven-letter words in the tableau.

So much fun! Has glitches, though.

This game is so much fun. The concept is brilliant. It's challenging but addicting, and it'll keep coming back for more, round after round. I even broke a sweat on one round. However, the app is a bit glitchy: namely, buttons becoming unresponsive at the end of games and not having an option to go back to the menu during the game. Also, the app's design feels a little rough and unfinished; I believe it could use a bit of refinement. Love this game app; I'll be awaiting minor updates. Cheers!
